Women’s Movements in Latin America: Pandemic-Era Political Agendas (a conversation)

The Latin American & Caribbean Studies interdisicplinary program at UT is proud to present an online conversation between two active researchers on Argentina about the recent "Pink Tide" of women involved in politics in Latin America.  The #NiUnaMenos movement, like #MeToo, protested sexual harassement, and violence against women, but also the alarming number of murders of women (femicide) across the hemisphere. Join us to hear them talk more about what women in Latin America have been doing in these challenging times.

Dr. Valeria Llobet (Universidad de San Martín, Argentina) holds a PhD from the Universidad de Buenos Aires in Social Psychology, and received Posdoctoral degrees in Social Sciences, Childhood and Youth from the Colegio de la Frontera Norte (COLEF), the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo (PUC San Pablo), and the Latin American Council of Social Sciences (CLACSO). She is a Full Professor in the School of Humanities at the Universidad de San Martín, and a researcher at Argentina's National Research Council (CONICET), where she serves as Director of the Center for the Studies of Inequalities, Subjects and Institutions. With interests in childhood and gender rights and the politics of inequalities, her current research project is  entitled "Children, youth and families: social transformation, care crisis and future(s) in the long-covid era."

Dr. Solange Muñoz (University of Tennessee, Knoxville) received an MA in Latin American Studies and her PhD in Geography from the University of Texas. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Tennessee, where she conducts research about Latin America, urban and cultural geography, housing & eviction, race and racism, infrastructure, migration & (Im)Mobility Studies.
